Series Thread (Games 96-98): July 21-23 @ Rangers

Fri 21 5p: Gonsolin vs. Heaney
Sat 22 1p: Miller vs. Dunning
Sun 23 11.30a: Sheehan vs. Perez

Win two, lose one. Win two, lose one. That's how the Dodgers have fared since the All-Star Break, winning series in Queens and in Baltimore. But now they face their toughest opponent of all, the Texas Rangers, who lead the AL West by 4.5 games (as of end of play Wednesdauy).

Thursday's day off will help erase the turd of Wednesday's eight-run stinker by Julio Urias. But this weekend will be quite a test to see if the Dodgers can maintain their razor-thin lead in the NL West.

Game Two, and it’s 10-3 LA.

Seager on the IL with a sprained thumb, which occurred in Game 1

The Dodgers have pounded the crap out of the Rangers these first two games. They have a chance to go 7-2 on a roadtrip that featured the spendy Mets, the first-place Orioles, and the first-place Rangers.

Okay so we lost game 3. Oh well.

One would think that a first-inning grand slam from Max Muncy would hold up. Nope
